“On the off chance it generates any profit, I’ll give it all to the Christie NHS Foundation.”
Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding released a new single at midnight, with all the profits going to a cancer charity.
Harding herself is currently battling advanced breast cancer. Her new single Wear It Like A Crown will raise money for the Christie NHS Foundation, one of the largest cancer care centres in Europe.
Sarah rediscovered the song, which she wrote ten years ago, while researching for her book, Hear Me Out.
The star announced the new release on Instagram earlier this morning.
She wrote: “While I was searching through my laptop for old photos to include in the book I actually came across a song I’d recorded about ten years ago. I’ve always really loved it, and it made me a bit sad that no one ever got to hear it.
“I mentioned this to my team and they said we could release it, and I thought ‘why the hell not?” It’s called Wear It Like A Crown and it’s out on iTunes and streaming from today!”
She continued: “I’ve literally no idea how this all works anymore, but on the off chance it generates any profit, I’ll give it all to the Christie NHS Foundation @christiecharity where I’m receiving my treatment.
“If you’ve read my book you’ll know just how amazing the Doctors, Nurses and all the staff at The Christie are. They are actual angels.”
Harding was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. She was later told that the cancer had spread around her body.
Her doctors told her that Christmas 2020 would be her last.
In her memoir she writes: “In December my doctor told me that the upcoming Christmas would probably be my last. I don’t want an exact prognosis. I don’t know why anyone would want that.”
Wear It Like A Crown is now streaming on all platforms.
